Changing of the Guard



It is with excitement and purpose that I start as the new Editor-in-Chief of Tattoo Artist Magazine. First and foremost, I am committed to continuing the culture of excellence and quality of TAM as admirably lead by outgoing Editor-in-Chief, Crash. I recognize the importance of TAM to our community & cultural progress and envision clear potential for continued growth and innovation. In conjunction with editing every issue of TAM, I also have a vision of further integrating TAM into the hands of avid tattoo collectors and artists, fully mining the educational format of TAM to better serve artists, collectors, readers and our society as a whole.

The “changing of the guard” at TAM will bring a new perspective to the magazine. With this change comes a shift in editorial emphasis to make TAM the world’s primary outlet for tattoo culture, tattoo education and tattoo art more relevant to our industry than any other magazine in our field. As the new Editor, my aim will be to increase the availability of important articles, artists, values, social and artistic advancements in our industry.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with me, I have been with TAM since it’s inception 11 years ago. Unlike Crash, I am not a tattoo artist, but have paid my dues within the industry for well over a decade. I know the ins and outs of everything tattoo and tattoo related. I am eager to start this position and see where I can help carry TAM into the future.

I invite each and every one of you who has any questions or concerns about the future of TAM and our craft to please email me to discuss our shared future and what we can build together.

  1. Rock it, Kent!!

    Thanks to everyone who has supported our mission over the last eleven years!!
    Our goal has always been to celebrate the positive role tattooing has played in our lives, and to showcase the world’s top tattoo talent by sharing their art, history and life lessons in the quality of format they deserve.

    May this community stand behind the new TAM vision, providing solid tattoo history and education (still so desperately needed) to everyone interested in this transformational craft…both in and out of our community.

    Thanks to All.

  2. Hey man, this is really great news. Honestly you are the only person who feels right for this passing of the torch, and I am really looking forward to seeing the magazine growing for many years to come!
